Amanzoe to Unveil Permanent James Turrell Installation

Amanzoe is honoured to announce Sky Plain, a unique art installation by one of the most influential artists of the last half century, James Turrell. The immersive light installation, known as a Skyspace, takes the form of a 6-metre by 6-metre cubic building with a large ceiling aperture, open to the Peloponnese sky above Amanzoe.

For over fifty years, James Turrell has drawn inspiration from nature, astronomy, architecture, physics and theology. Using light as his material, Turrell works on and affects the medium of perception. Widely known for his work, Roden Crater, a monumental-scale artwork created within a volcano in Northern Arizona, Turrell was recognised with concurrent solo exhibitions in 2013 at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH). Sky Plain is the only permanent Turrell installation in the Mediterranean.

The Skyspace is installed at Villa 31 of Amanzoe, located on the Western ridge of the resort offering unobstructed views over the surrounding landscape and the Aegean Sea, with spectacular sunsets. Sky Plain is an immersive installation in which guests experience a uniquely intimate relationship with the light of the sky.

The art installation is available to guests taking residence in Villa 31, allowing them to enjoy Sky Plain at their leisure throughout their stay. As well as including the Skyspace, Villa 31 comprises a master bedroom, 22 metre private pool, kitchen, extensive shaded terraces and living room all set around a serene reflection pool.

Subject to availability, guests of Amanzoe will also be able to enjoy Sky Plain as part of a unique dining experience which includes an aperitif and dinner, culminating in a private immersion in this rare setting.
